About the Client

This firm of 27 are making waves in the accountancy and advisory space, and need to add a senior to their growing team. The firm is growing rapidly, so they have moved the basic compliance work offshore to enable their onshore staff to engage in the more complex work and advisory. This would be a great opportunity for someone who wants work in a growing business, for growing clients. Work will never be stagnant, and there will be an expectation for you to provide consultation and advice to clients as they develop.

As a rapidly expanding team, this firm does not follow the traditional progression path. If you work hard, you can quickly progress to the senior management team – there is a partner in their twenties! No need to move forward at the same pace as your peers, your talent and dedication will be recognised and rewarded.


Work amongst stunning views, or alternatively enjoy some flexibility and work from the comfort of your own home. This firm truly understands the meaning of work-life balance and offers plenty of support on how you wish to conduct your work. In addition, the firm offers a variety of training seminars to match your career goals, and managers and partners are accessible and available to provide leadership and professional insights. The firm is supportive and renown for diversity, they accommodate and welcome people of all backgrounds – if you don’t celebrate Easter, use your leave for Eid instead!

The management team encourage you to keep the firm front of mind, and will come to you for advice on business development and new client opportunities. They want staff that will help mould the business, and your opinions on how to better the organisation will be heard, considered and often implemented.
